Re: Food 'n' whatnot

I've also been doing some slow cooker experimentation- I tend to work till 7 or later during the week but my mornings are mostly free, so slow cookers are my friend. And I found this recipe.

Re: Huge Increase In Arctic Multi-year Ice

Wasn't arctic ice supposed to be gone by now?

Nope. The ice models were predicting an ice-free Arctic summer sometime between 2070 and 2100. But those particular models are known to have some problems (in resolving the salinity and [more]

Re: Humility

I have not been the greatest communicator in this thread, but, you guys can hand wave this subject away and say perception doesn't matter (good luck with that), or you can attempt to understand what is driving it, so far I've only seen the [more]

Re: Humility

James Hansen can do what he wants, good for him if he wants to get arrested for climate change, I actually think he's at least willing to make a sacrifice for something he believes in, unlike most. Regardless, the actions are going to create a [more]

Re: Some temperature background

Why don't you quantify the effect of phantom station moves?

What effect? There's literally no effect from short-distance station moves except to slightly increase the uncertainty in the end result. You can insert artificial [more]

Re: The problem 2

And if the dataset that we have is too small to draw significant conclusions, then we shouldn't be trying to use it to shape politics and policy or bludgeon people with different beliefs.

When it's too small to draw significant

Re: The problem 2

Here's what else you said before: "even the last 18 is rather irrelevant"
So some years are more relevant than others.


I'm not sure what kind of answer you're expecting. It really is the case that sometimes in science, [more]

Re: Paleo repeats the 3 degrees per doubling

So Martinez-Boti and his colleagues chose this epoch for study, and they initially found that CO2 raised temperatures by more than in the Pliocene. But when they accounted for the greater ice-sheet coverage during the ice age (ice sheets are [more]

Re: The problem 2

Because 75% of all CO2 emissions from burning fossil fuels have happened since 1966? Half of all emissions have happened since 1987.

I am willing to consider the theory that without those emissions the temperature would have gone down,

Re: The problem 2

Polls of publishing climate scientists show that somewhere between 85-95% say that global warming is predominantly caused by humans.

/shrug. So maybe it's not 97% exactly, but it's still high. I don't see any point in obsessing over the [more]

Re: The problem

Ah yes. Loren's insistence that a causal theory is more important than empirical evidence.

A causal theory requires empirical evidence. You can hardly have such a theory without one. But certainly having a data + causal theory [more]

Re: Modeling biological climate change impact

In general we've been cooling over the last 50 million years and certainly over the last three million. We are living in one of the coldest periods since life arose on earth.

Why do you think that is, if you had to take a guess?

Re: The problem

The statement was that the difference between 2010 and 2014 is not distinguishable from zero, which is a true statement.

Not distinguishable from zero at the level of 95% certainty, yes.

And yet the whole AGW argument [more]
